Talk, Dan Talk!

Looking forward to hearing Dan Gillmor tonight at Harvard's Kennedy School of Govt.:
Here's a summary for Monday's talk: As technology collides with journalism, democratizing the tools of media creation and distribution, news is evolving from a lecture into a conversation. As individuals become more engaged with the news and its creation, they will be taking steps beyond simply being better informed -- a journey toward enhanced civic activism as well. This talk, the first in a series of four, explains recent developments in grassroots media and why they are so important to the notion of an informed citizenry.

Alex Jones, the center's director, and David Berlind, ZD Net executive editor, will discuss the issues with me after the formal part of the event. (There'll be pizza and other refreshments, too, if that also helps...)

Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Malkin Penthouse, 4th floor, Littauer Building, Kennedy School of Government
Sponsors: Berkman Center for Internet & Society and the Shorenstein Center
